Objects help us remember and tell our stories. In museums, objects illustrate the past and help us imagine the experiences of those who went before. Families, too, often save special mementos that remind us of our family stories. With Your Story, Our Story, the Tenement Museum invites people across the country to share those stories in our online digital storytelling exhibit.
Your Story, Our Story highlights stories of immigration, migration, and cultural identity, past and present, through objects and traditions. Each story reveals one individual’s experience. Together, our stories help us see how our unique histories shape the nation, and the patterns that bind us together.
